It seems never to occur to politicians (or others) that these hate crimes are hoaxes done by the (((left))) to whip up hysteria among liberals.
The politicians in this story are massively bullsh*tting the significance, which proves how politically correct the country is. Hopefully, it will be proven to be a hoax, in which case we pile on these idiot politicians.
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino said Monday that the spray painting of a swastika and the words “White Power” along the Bronx River Parkway bike path in White Plains will be investigated as a hate crime, and “we will make an example” of the culprit.
But Astorino, who attributed the graffiti to the political turmoil gripping the nation in the aftermath of the presidential election, also compared the incident to anti-Trump demonstrations that have sprouted up throughout the nation, and said leaders on both sides of the political aisle needed to ease tensions.
“I would ask President Obama and Hillary Clinton as well to come out and say to their supporters, ‘Calm down,'” Astorino told reporters at the scene of the incident. “This should not be tolerated. We are a democracy. Voters have spoken, and this is how we move forward as a country. I think both sides have a lot to say and should say, about the healing process, that none of this should be acceptable.”
“There are ways to deal with this,” he added. “The hate that’s coming out of some of the protests and the hate that’s coming out of those on the winning side, this has to stop. We’re setting up a very dangerous precedent, a very dangerous and toxic environment. This stuff has to stop on both sides.”
New York billionaire Donald Trump’s victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has sparked unrest throughout the nation, including daily anti-Trump demonstrations in the Big Apple and other major cities. Trump’s campaign was laced with anti-immigration rhetoric that inflamed many Americans and emboldened others to denounce minorities.
In the White Plains incident, city resident Douglas Century said he was jogging along the Bronx River Parkway trail when he came up on a swastika spray painted in white along the path about 3 p.m. Sunday. Century said the graffiti was not there when he had jogged past the scene 40 minutes earlier.
“My position was if I see a swastika, take a photo of it, call the police,” Century said.
“Obviously the fact that there’s news crews and the county executive’s coming and everybody took it seriously is a sign that we’re living in the United States of America and hate crimes are not tolerated,” he said. “But my opinion is don’t draw cause and effect if you don’t see it. I can’t blame it on the election. It could’ve been someone who’s been painting swastikas all along the Bronx River Parkway for months.”
Astorino called the incident “vile” and “disgusting,” and said county police had already launched an investigation and had consulted with the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
“I don’t care if this was a kid who thought this was a funny prank or if this was an adult that took stupidity to the nth level,” he said. “This is something that will be prosecuted.”
“We will make an example out of this person that we will not tolerate this kind of hatred and bigotry in our county,” he said.
Come now, Mr. Astorino. You’ve scared my kitty cat.
